Three planes offered, waiting for reply
Head of Marketing Otto Karud at NLA Global Medical Support said to the local paper Stavanger Aftenblad that he is surprised that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has not responded to their offer.
«If the authorities had accepted our offer we could have collected about 20 emergency patients since the tidal wave hit,» Karud said to the paper.
Neither Margrete Halvorsen, communication director at the Directorate of Health and Social Affairs, nor Anne Lene Dale Sandsten at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is familiar with the offer.
While NLA is waiting for an answer from Norwegian authorities, the company has already flown home two Swedes and two Finns.
